THE KINGSTON SPRINGS
The Kingston Springs have just independently released their debut full-length album, aptly titled, The Kingston Springs, TODAY. To hear the album in full, stream it on Soundcloud.
Check out the first single, "Lowest of Animals". The track was inspired by the Mark Twain essay, "The Lowest Animal", and features Nashville gospel/soul singer LaShanda Evans on background vocals. It's a great tune. Another highlight is "Weight of This World". Overall, I'm really digging everything that I have heard so far.
So where can you purchase The Kingston Springs?
It is available online through iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, Zune, Rhapsody, Bandcamp ,etc.) and at select record stores today. The album is also available to stream on Spotify.
